A few quick-ish paintings I did for practise. Done in 4 hrs, 4 hrs and 2 hrs, respectively.
The first one was painted about 3 months ago, the other 2 are both from today.

Let me know which ones you like :)

Rhys.

The mermaid is just stunning!! By far, she’s my favorite!!  I adore her exotic looking fishy fins adorning her lovely tail!!  She has a gorgeous physique & cute face. I think she’d look incredibly exotic with webbing between her fingers, too!!!  Hope to see more of this aquatic beauty!!
I’ll have to say, the Colonial babe ranks a close 2nd!!  I just adore a sexy slender physique such as hers...she’s beautiful!!  Her flat abs & small/reasonable chest are sexy!!  I’d pine to see a gorgeous rear view!! ;)  Nice job on her cute feet, too!!  Now, mix her up with some mermaid features & she’d rank at the top for me!!  Some cute calf-fins, as well as exotic looking webbed fingers and toes, & She’d make an outstanding Colonial Mermaid!! ;)

The gladiatorix is cleary my favorite picture, still the other boths are very good. But the shine and structure of the marble, the details of the floor and the disenchanted expression on her face are outstanding. And the rose is a nice detail. I would like to see more pictures of her, maybe at training or in the arena, saluting to the emperor.

This one goes to favorites.

The third is my favourite! The outfits and colours are fab and I love the face of the one on the left :) And even though it's more roughly painted than the other two, the body proportions are more realistic, no?

What do you mean by source? The full res image? Or the pose references?

The pose references, please. You did a great job with it and I'd like to take a swing at it myself. :)

Whoa, these are gorgeous! Your shading is incredible, at first I thought the second was a photograph! The composition of each painting is fantastic and it really sets the mood!

Haha thanks. I combine photos with my painting to make them look more realistic and save time. The faces here are all photos, for example. :)

they´re all very impressive, especially considering the time you´ve spent on them. the use of decent color and light gives all subjects a very realistic look. the mixture of detail and rough areas is well balanced.
if i had to decide i would pick the last one because of the warm colors and the unusual light direction (and i like these boheme skirt style:D).

I'm glad you like them! Still a lot of room for improvement though :) And yes something worked well in that last image with the colours/temperature and I'm definitely going to pursue it further.
